i know at some point i made those Eddy Curry jokes (and more than half of Real GM) and i feel guilty now.
My main takeaway is that it's very easy for us to criticize these players but we forget that these are human beings, with real struggles (outside basketball) too.
The Truth Was Way WorseBefore I knew it, I was on a plane flying back to New York, and even just within those few hours more and more details became clear. I found out that my son Noah was right there when his mother and sister were shot. But he was so little that he didn’t really understand what had happened. He’d tried to wake up his mom after the shooting, so when the officers went in and found him there, he had blood all over him. He actually laid down next to her and had fallen asleep.
Noah hadn’t been able to wake up his mom or his sister, and probably thought they were sleeping, so he went to sleep, too.
These were the lines that hit me, guess being older and being a father now changes a lot of perspective and made me feel guilty about the jokes.
In behalf of RealGM, i'd like to apologize to Eddy Curry and every other player we made fun of-- especially the personal ones where we really don't know the entire story.
There's nothing wrong with being gay. Why does he keep bringing that up like it bothers him?
